Product Overview

Our Jasmine Sambac Absolute is an extremely beautiful oil for Jasmine lovers, but with a slightly different aroma than Jasminum grandiflorum – it has a fresh, natural greenness compared to our sweeter, more sultry Jasmine absolutes from India and Egypt. Its somewhat green fruity/floral initial aroma is followed by the characteristic rich floral/honey/tea notes that become sweeter in the drydown. Jasmine Sambac is ideal in natural perfumery for a greener, lighter and fresher Jasmine aroma and for perhaps being somewhat more tenacious than Jasminum grandiflorum.[1]

Jasmine has been among the principal ingredients of more than 80% of all quality perfumes and a third of all men’s fragrances.[2] The sensual aroma is exhilarating and playful, and according to Patricia Davis, brings together the fiery dynamism associated with the masculine aspect (yang) and the soft earthiness of the feminine (yin).[3] The uninhibited aroma evokes lightness and joy, setting the stage for physical awareness and imagination. It is no wonder that the flowers, thought to awaken the spiritual nature of intimacy, have been used traditionally in some cultures to decorate the bed of newlyweds. In magical spiritual traditions, Jasmine is used as a devotional anointing oil and is worn for blessings and good luck.[4]

One look at the chemistry of this seductive aroma explains a lot about its sensual appeal. Amid a bouquet of complex flowery esters, including methyl anthranilate, is the queen of floral aromas, indole, but only if smelled in low concentrations; it occurs naturally in human feces and, at full strength, has an intense fecal odor. At very low concentrations, however, it is intensely floral and appears in some of the sweetest blossoms – for example Narcissus, Jonquil, Honeysuckle, Champaca and Neroli – and is highly regarded in natural perfumery.

Jasmine vines in full flower have a voluptuous aroma that surrounds and embraces anyone who passes. Indeed, no other floral aroma can compare to Jasmine’s legendary effects. The aroma of Jasmine is said to blend with virtually everything and is an indispensable ingredient for the natural perfumer.

Funky Jasmine Sambac

Rating

My jasmine sambac smells off which I don’t understand- have never had this problem before with anything from eden. The Flouve is totally and unexpectedly delightful though and the best i’ve ever smelled. Will be definitely ordering more for my winter oil concoction.

Beautifully Fruity!

Rating

Pure fruit, pure aphrodisiac! Truly full-bodied because of the "absolute" components that are included in this oil. It's really gorgeous - and I think it would be an amazing stand-alone perfume or aroma-therapy treatment! Keep up the amazing work Eden Botanicals - you bring a lot of joy and healing to people's lives!

green chemical smell

Rating

I diluted mine to 10 percent and it has a green chemical weird smell. Yes there is some jasmine aspects but different from jasmine grandiflorum. i can't use it in a jasmine theme perfume cause I don't find its use. Just my experience

Glorious

Rating

An absolutely gorgeous Jasmine. It doesn’t have the animaliac undertones that some jasmines can throw - very complex, clean floral; it reminds me of the jasmine note in Jean Patou’s Joy—and joyful it is!
